    Favourite half-time entertainment at SJP?

    ECFC had its own "shoot the turkey" entertainment, I believe it was the brainchild of Steve Birley. I think it had to be stopped when some fat kid (and no it wasn't me) had to receive medical attention, I don't think it was from embarrassment, but exhaustion after he had ran around chasing...

    Grecians 1 Chiefs 0

    It is clear that this bloke Rowe is a right 'See you Next Tuesday', but if i remember correctly that there were several on Exeweb bemoaning our management regretting that we were not run on such professional level. We have to be careful what we wish for. Fair credit to those offering...

    Premier League Cup 2019-20

    Thanks for the info Denzel. I see that if you follow the link it takes you to a page with a match Preview and not particularly very informative, however, grayed out at the moment there are other tabs one of which says "Live Match". Does anyone know whether this is will be an option on Thursday?

    The Serious Torquay Thread

    I concur. When you read the contents of the Gull's mission statement in TUST Brochure "Uniting Torbay" what can the owner possibly be concerned about?... Our Mission Statement TUST promotes good governance and seeks to ensure the long-term sustainability of our club for the benefit of current...

    Update on the SJP works

    I vaguely remember some more 'Wovles' related graffiti, somewhere else in the city it read "Sammy Chung's a Chinese takeaway", don't remember where this was written though. Shocked to realise this was nearly 40 years ago, football really has gone so wrong since those great days...

    Tisdale out brigade - Mk Edition.

    Hmmm, following our fall out with our previous manager and the bad taste he left, a bit me wanted him to fail so I wash my hands of him with the "grass is always greener", "we told you so...", "Exeter's model is best" etc... closure in my mind. However, I am no nearer that because I keep...

    Invest in Excellence

    I thought I read somewhere that the EPL held a gun to THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE (I refuse to use the EFL acronym - it's not the EFL - it's THE Football League that's either getting in step with the F'ing EPL or a throw back to the influence from the hierarchy at FIFA who informed the world when it was...

    2019/20 kits

    Is memory playing tricks on me? I thought the blue was darker than this 'Terrace' version which looks almost sky blue and the Carling advertising bit was sooo shiny. Probably my dodgy laptop screen

    Pre-season friendly in Jersey

    Sure thing. When is it though? I fancy running a boat to the game from Exmouth like we did before. I don't suppose for a minute it will be a Saturday, more likely a Tuesday night at 7.45. :(

    Exeter vs Peterborough

    A nice man fro iFollow has told me... "Unfortunately the club made a decision to remove the Live audio commentary, You will however be able to watch the match by purchasing a match pass" Thanks ECFC Grrr

    Exeter vs Peterborough

    Yup, working in the midlands, just checked into the hotel hoping to catch the second half. Only option is pay £10 (the same as admission), despite being a paid up subscriber I don't get a "Listen Live Now" option, so it's pay £10 to watch 40 mins of football or nothing. Being the curious sort...

    Trust AGM 2018

    Fully behind you on this Dave. Whilst the cost is obviously an important point, but the principle is vital to any management system. One way to reduce costs may be for a full set of procedures, objectives, targets and trustee/staff roles to be defined by the "Governance" team and this to be...

    Exeter City v Forest Green Rovers Matchday Thread

    Well done Rog and Stevie Darke. I think you have been too modest on here to mention that you guys went out to the war graves in France/Belgium and put wreaths on from Exeter City supporters. Thanks for that too.
